A banner commemorating the feat is permanently suspended from the rafters of the arena. From their first newsletters to the LivePhish app, the group anticipated the direct engagement of today’s fans, while also interacting with fans during their live performances via on-stage chess matches that enabled the audience to play the group, a “secret language” of special musical clues and a “Big Ball Jam.” The group’s management and support team is made up of aberrants and innovators whose work continues to resonate with the live performance industry.
